By H. P. Lovecraft, August Derleth
The Watchers Out of Time is an omnibus number of tales through August Derleth encouraged partially by way of notes left via H. P. Lovecraft after his dying and provided as a "posthumous collaboration" among the 2 writers. (Derleth acted as Lovecraft's literary executor.)
Some controversy exists between Lovecraft's admirers as to the ethics of offering the tales as collaborative works. Upon this volume's booklet, Donald Wandrei, one in all Arkham House's founders, wrote letters to reviewers complaining that the tales have been primarily Derleth's personal works, incorporating fragments of unpublished Lovecraft prose. Gahan Wilson agreed that the tales "should particularly be billed as his [Derleth's] personal, and only according to the notes and letters of Lovecraft, and at the Lovecraftian mythos as he [Derleth] observed it, and less than that."
